so as most of you probably already know, captain beefheart died at the age of 69 on december 17th (read more from npr here or from pitchfork here). what you may not know is that after leaving music he became a renowned abstract painter. and since i’m sad that he’s gone, here are a few of those pieces:



and from “further than we’ve gone” which you can listen to here)…

Further than we’ve gone
The stars sing a song
Together that only lovers can hear
Come up close to me, lover
Under the heaven’s beautiful cover
We’re here at last

Only love
And that all love appear

Further than we’ve gone
The stars sing a song
Together that only lovers can hear
Come up close to me, lover
Under the heaven’s beautiful cover

Only love
And that all love appear

damn, beefheart.
